bfisher Vote • April 2017

Help us select what the MR Literary Club will read in April 2017!

The options this month are courtesy of our rotating nominator, bfisher.


Voting will run for four days. The vote will close exactly four days from this post; even if the final tally doesn't occur immediately after voting closes, no votes made after that time will count.

Votes will be made by post. Each person has SIX votes to use.

You may give each nominee one or two (or no) votes. You may vote all at once in one post or vote in separate posts at different times, so long as you have more votes remaining to cast. You may use any number of your possible votes up to the maximum. Any extraneous votes per person (past their maximum or more than two for one nominee) won't count. Votes cannot be changed once they are cast.

The rotating nominator may not vote. Once voting is complete, the count will be tallied and a winner declared. In the event of a tie, there will be a one-day run-off vote, also in this thread. If the run-off also ends in a tie, then the tie will be resolved by the nominator.

We hope that you will read the selection with the club and join in the discussion.


The floor is now open!

I am goin' to vote this time 'cos we have piles of reading time as we sit anchored in a remote sheltered bay while the remnants of Bookpossum's ex cyclone "Debbie" passes over us. So:

2 votes to Burmese Days
2 votes to The Cat's Table

Due to Burmese Days being on my reading list already, and our 2 ship's cats on board with us are always demanding access to The Cat's Table :-).
